I was always taught (by my Grandpa) to cast something without hooks into the river current and let it carry out as far as you trust it to not snag then to wind it up and the stretch is supposed to make the line more forgiving and eliminate twists/memory... I don't always do it though |
He also liked to troll with drag loosened and let the line out of most of the reel to fix the problem that way also...
The interesting thing to me is.. I've only had line twist once in recent memory.. last spring I tried these plastic 'propeller' lures and it didn't matter whether I threw it on mono, or fluorocarbon, I had one mess of knots and ended up recycling 200 yards of each.
Even a BAD day of fishing is better than a good day of work; paydays excluded!
